Synopsis

Double bill of martial arts films. 'Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story' (1993) is the big screen biopic based on the life of martial arts superstar Bruce Lee, as told by his widow, Linda. Rising from obscurity on the streets of Hong Kong, Lee (Jason Scott Lee) moves to America, takes various small parts in films and TV shows, before eventually achieving worldwide fame in a series of Hong Kong action pictures. However, despite his success as the world's biggest martial arts star, mystic forces appear to be conspiring against him in his private life. In 'The Twins Effect' (2003) Charlene Choi and Gillian Chung, known in Hong Kong as pop star duo The Twins, star in this slick teen kung-fu action comedy with a romantic subplot. An evil western vampire (Mickey Hardt) has set out to gather the blood essence of all other vampires of royal heritage, including the relatively harmless Prince Kazaf (Edison Chen), so that he can walk in daylight. But expert vampire hunter Reeve (Ekin Cheng), his new partner Gypsy (Gillian Chung), and his sister Helen (Charlene Choi) have other plans - and despite their sweet good looks and diminutive size, this trio are a force to be reckoned with... Hong Kong stars Jackie Chan and Karen Mok both have cameo roles.
